Ex-Wales rugby captain Gareth Thomas has been speaking on a popular American chat show about the struggle he faced before publicly declaring that he was gay. The Crusaders star told host Ellen DeGeneres this week that before his marriage he used to visit church and "pray to be straight". The Hollywood actor was speaking on a Christmas edition of the Channel 4 talk show Alan Carr: Chatty Man and hinted should the film be made, he would even learn Welsh for the role. Thomas, who is nicknamed Alfie, and grew up in Sarn, near Bridgend, appeared on the DeGeneres show in front of a TV audience of millions to talk frankly about his coming out experience. He related how the first person he told was his wife, Jemma, who he divorced earlier this year, before broaching the subject with his parents. He said: "I became the master of playing the straight bat- I would go to bars with the boys, I would always be the one to start a fight, to be outrageous and drink the most. Thomas revealed that when he first told his parents there was silence, but three weeks later he visited them at home and saw three champagne glasses on the table.
